I'm feeling good without meat, it seems those 1 or 2 meals are all I need to even me out (wow how much do I sound like a junkie?). I'm still taking my multivitamin supplement (obviously we can debate on whether that's even necessary), and my moods are good, even and I'm feeling back to normal (huzzah!).

I've been having green tea before most workouts and I guess it's been making me feel good, my numbers are going up and so are my stats. I did a weight and bodyfat percentage test on the OMRON on Tuesday and I was sitting at 96kgs and 17.5%BF, which is a 2kg weight increrase with only a .5% bf increase (about 350-400g of fat?) which is pretty good in about the 4 weeks since I last measured it, a nice vindication and reassurance that what I'm doing is working. I might add a creatine supplement when my weight gets to 100kgs, and I'll start dieting if I get close to 20%, otherwise I'll just be too fat, by summer. As it was on my last 6 month diet (from January to June last year) I went from 100kgs to 93kgs in 6 months and lost 5% bodyfat (from about 18% to 14%), and I went pretty hard. I was training 6 days a week, I did Alwyn Cosgroves "Alternating Set System" which was a 12 week program followed by a 12 week x3 day a week circuit program with progressively more intense intervals on non weight training days (I basically followed Cosgrove's heirarchy of fat loss). Which is possibly what I may do this time round.
Breakfast: 1 cup of oats with 1 scoop protein powder, hi lo milk, 1/2 teaspoon of sugar. 700mL of water.
Meal after morning shift: Smoothy- 1/2 cup of berries, 1 cup of mixed veggies, 1 banana, 1 pear/apple, 1/2 cup of walnuts/cashews, a touch of cinnamon, 750mL of water, 1 cup of yogurt, 150g cottage cheese, 3 broccoli stems, handful of cherry tomatoes, lentils, chick peas (or various other types of beans/lentils). I also forgot to note, this makes 2 shakes that I have over the course of the day, or I have the leftover one the next day.
Meal before training and afternoon shift: 1 can of salt reduced baked beans, 1 glass of Hilo milk. 500mL water.
Post workout shake: x2 up n go "energize"'s, 30g of protein powder. 500-700mL of water during training.
Dinner: Various egg options, I cooked up my chicken and made a korma curry with it.But as you see above, have only had 2 meals from it, other meals included eggs on toast, egg white omelette's with toast etc.
Supplements. 3-4 fish oil tabs with my morning smoothy, and I've started taking a multivitamin supplement once-twice a day.
